Low Fat Diets are a Health Hazard

by Andrew Krajewski » Thu Jun 16, 2016 5:46 pm

Urging people to follow low-fat diets and to lower their cholesterol
is having “disastrous health consequences”, a health charity has warned.

In a damning report that accuses major public health bodies of colluding with the food industry,
the National Obesity Forum and the Public Health Collaboration
call for a “major overhaul” of current dietary guidelines.

They call for a return to “whole foods” such as meat,
fish and dairy, as well as high-fat, healthy foods including avocados,
arguing: “Eating fat does not make you fat.”

The report also argues that saturated fat does not cause heart disease
while full-fat dairy, including milk, yoghurt and cheese, can actually protect the heart.

The report also said a diet low in refined carbohydrates
but high in healthy fats
is “an effective and safe approach for preventing weight gain and aiding weight loss”,
and cuts the risk of heart disease.

The authors of the report also argue that
the science of food has also been “corrupted by commercial influences”.

The influence of the food industry represents a “significant threat to public health”, they argued.

They said the recent Eatwell Guide from Public Health England (PHE)
was produced with a large number of people from the food and drink industry.

Profit is behind this.

Low fat diets and products sell and make money.

This results in people becoming ill and so the drug companies make money.

The Government collects taxes off the back of these profits.

So is it surprising that
the Government colludes with the food companies, medical profession, drug companies, etc
to ensure that profits continue to be made
and all at our, the voters, health and expense.

What a sorry state of affairs!
